“History: Fiction or Science?” series of 26 books is the most explosive tractate on history ever written proving irrefutably that the timeline of the civilization takes into account only the irrefutably dated non-contradictory events and artifacts barely exceed 1000 years!
‘The Issue with Troy’ shows the amazed reader that the whole Troy story was a swindle exercised by german ‘archeologist ‘adventurer Schliemann. Dr. Fomenko follows Sir Isaac Newton’s ideas in «The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended» and applies Occam’s razor (among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected) he concludes that Homer’s history of Troy is pure fiction. Indeed, the consensual localization for Homer’s Troy is Hisarlik near the Hellespont straits. Herr Heinrich Schliemann used this hypothesis for solemnly baptizing as “Troy” the 100 by 100-meter excavation site of a minuscule ancient settlement (such ruins do abound there) that he had discovered near the Hellespont, where he announced the finding of gold of Priam artifacts that he himself designed and manufactured by Paris jewelers Bulgari.
Schliemann’s excavation of nine levels of archaeological remains with dynamite was constructive for supporting Homer’s Iliad but somewhat destructive for any significant historical artifacts, including the level that is presumed to be the historical Troy.
Compared to his ‘archeology’ Hollywood’s Troy can be considered an excellent irrefutable documentary. Herr Schliemann (1822-1890) was a German businessman-adventurer of the Indiana Jones mold. Hyssarlik should be renamed again from Troy into Schliemannstadt.
The reason for such speedy discovery was that all things ‘ancient’ greek were fashion very much in demand in Berlin in 1868. ‘Ancient’ Rome brand was too French and thus corrupt. German Reich was to be built on a clean of ‘ancient’ greek example and style. Just look at German buildings and monuments of that period. German Indiana Schlieman did his job and delivered the goods. Sieg Heil!
